Christmas ham

INGREDIENTS
18 generous slices of ham off the bone
Dijon mustard
Wholegrain mustard
Flat leaf parsley (for garnish)

PREPARATION
1. Display ham on a large platter.

2. Garnish with some flat-leaf parsley and serve with small bowls of Dijon mustard and wholegrain mustard.

NOTES
This is not so much a recipe as a recommendation to find a good local butcher and put in an order for your Christmas ham. A good local butcher bakes his own hams year round and sells it by the slice at a price, and indeed quality, better than the supermarkets.
Make sure you have good quality mustards on hand to serve with this platter.
